Hard Work Gets Rewarded.

When we work together and invest in each other, great things happen.

That’s why we provide more than $2.5M in scholarships each year, supporting students from their first year through to graduation. Along with scholarships, CBU also supports students through in-course bursaries and paid work-study programs.
